Jio Conquers Netflix ISP Speed Test 1st Time Ever; Vodafone 4G Has Best Upload Speed In India!
Netflix released the January ISP speed test results for India. Reliance Jio Fiber has consistently maintained its position among the fastest Internet Service Providers (ISPs) in Netflix’s ISP speed index, but for the past few months, it had shot down. Now, for the month of January, Jio Fiber has regained the top position of the fastest ISP.
According to Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) data, Jio has average 4G download speed 20.9 Mbps, the highest in India whereas Vodafone topped in the 4G upload speed category in January, 2020.
Jio With the Highest ISP Speed!
Jio launched its fiber broadband service in India September, 2019
The leaderboard showed Jio GigaFiber climbing up a spot with 3.63 Mbps data speeds. The competition between Jio Fiber and 7 star digital was a tough one wherein the latter had speed of 3.62 Mbps.
The 3rd position was secured by Spectra at 3.50 Mbps followed by Airtel at 3.48 mbps and Vodafone-backed You Broadband at 3.41 mbps.
Netflix wrote on its site, “The Netflix ISP Speed Index is a measure of prime time Netflix performance on particular ISPs (internet service providers) around the globe, and not a measure of overall performance for other services/data that may travel across the specific ISP network.”
Jio Fiber saw lower speeds from April, 2019 wherein it had gone down to fifth position and had been in between the top five ranks. It finally managed to climb up the top spot in 2020. Till August 2019, Jio Fiber was in its testing stage and available to select users in beta.
Vodafone has Top Upload Speed!
TRAI computes the average speed based on the data it collects across India with the help of its MySpeed application on a real-time basis.
Jio saw a dip in its download speed in November, 2019 with a record of 27.2 Mbps. The speed was still three times the download speed of it rival Bharti Airtel.
The TRAI data shows the average 4G download speed for Bharti Airtel as 7.9 Mbps, Vodafone 7.6 Mbps and Idea 6.5 Mbps. Vodafone and Idea have not yet merged, hence the separate measurement of performance.
Vodafone secured the highest rank in the upload speed with a data speed of 6 Mbps. Idea ranked second with 5.6 Mbps followed by Reliance Jio with 4.6 Mbps and Airtel at 3.8 Mbps.
